Date:9/24/2008

w my diabetes is under control."

As a part of Take the Stage for Diabetes Awareness, Mr. Vereen is kicking off a nation-wide tour, traveling around the country with healthcare professionals to educate people living with diabetes and their families about the importance of diabetes awareness. He will share his personal story about living with type 2 diabetes and speak about how essential it is to find the best diabetes treatment plan for them. While living with diabetes is not always easy, the first step to managing it is to get serious about your health and talk with your treating healthcare provider about all available diabetes treatment options and your individual blood sugar goals.

"The good news for people living with diabetes is that the condition is manageable," said Michael Bush, MD, Clinical Associate Professor of Medicine, UCLA, and Division of Endocrinology, Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. "However, treatment regimens may need to be changed or adjusted over time, and many people living with type 2 diabetes who currently manage their condition through diet, exercise and taking oral medications alone, may eventually require the addition of insulin to their treatment plan. That is why it is so important to regularly talk with your doctor about which treatment plan is best for you."

"I am lucky -- I have a great doctor who helped me reach my personal treatment goals," said Mr. Vereen. "But, it is important for people to know that I take action everyday to maintain my blood sugar control. Checking my blood sugar levels often, continuing to make healthy food choices, exercising regularly, monitoring my activity levels, and taking my diabetes medication as prescribed has become part of my daily routine."
